THE Smartie has been declared York’s favourite sweet.
The colourful treat, made by Nestlé, came out top in a poll of more than 5,000 people carried out by York’s Chocolate Story, in King’s Square, York.
The survey, which took place over two months, formed part of celebrations of the 120th anniversary of Fruit Gums and the 50th anniversary of Tootty Frooties, both of which were created in the city of York.
People were asked to vote for their favourite sweet out of the many famous brands that have come out of the city, including Fruit Pastilles, Fruit Gums, Jelly Tots, Smarties, Tooty Frooties, Polos and Rowntree’s Randoms.
Smarties edged victory with 21 per cent of the vote, followed by Fruit Pastilles with 18 per cent and Jelly Tots in third with 16 per cent.
